Layman is an "overlay" external repository management tool.
  
LXQt is a lightweight Desktop environment. Some LXDE developers decided to create a Qt based version of their Desktop environment, it's name was lxde-qt. Around the same time some other people were working on a different minimal Qt based DE called razor-qt. When some developers of those projects met they decided to join forces and work together on one project. LXQt was born.

=== Installation ===
 +
<console>###i## emerge layman</console>
 +
=== Using Layman ===
 +
Fetch, and display a list of overlays:
 +
<console>###i## layman -L</console>
  
== Installation ==
+
Add an overlay to your system:
 +
<console>###i## layman -a <overlay name></console>
 +
After adding first overlay(s) [[make.conf]] must source laymans overlays for emerge to pull in packages from external sources.  This line needs to be below everything else in make.conf.
 +
<console>###i## echo "source /var/lib/layman/make.conf" >> /etc/portage/make.conf</console>
 +
Delete an overlay from your system:
 +
<console>###i## layman -d <overlay name></console>
  
It is recommended to set the LXQt mix-in before emerging it.
+
==== Masking Overlay Packages ====
 +
Overlays have the power to override distro packages.  To avoid conflicts, mask everything in the overlay, and unmask the packages that are necessary to your system.
  
{{console|body=
+
{{file|name=/etc/portage/package.mask|lang=|desc=mask all packages in an overlay|body=
###i## eselect profile add funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/lxqt
+
*/*::overlay-name
###i## emerge lxqt-meta
+
 
}}
 
}}
  
== Starting LXQt ==
+
{{file|name=/etc/portage/package.unmask|lang=|desc=unmask packages to be used|body=
 +
cat-egory/pack-age1
 +
cat-egory/pack-age2
 +
}}
  
You can either use a display manager to log into your system and start LXQt, or you can log in on a TTY and run {{c|startx}} to start xinit by hand.
+
==== Sync ====
  
=== xinit ===
+
Sync a specific overlays ebuilds:
 +
<console>###i## layman -s <overlay name></console>
  
You should edit the file  {{c|~/.xinitrc}} if it already exists, and put {{c|"exec startlxqt"}} in there.
+
Sync all overlays:
If it doesn't exist you can create it like this:
+
<console>###i## layman -S</console>
 
+
{{console|body=$##i## echo "exec startlxqt" > ~/.xinitrc}}
+
 
+
You might want to add the commands and options {{c|ck-launch-session dbus-launch --sh-syntax --exit-with-session}} to the {{c|exec]}} to start it with ConsoleKit and DBus.
+
In this case you also need to add ConsoleKit to the default runlevel:
+
 
+
{{console|body=
+
###i## rc-update add consolekit default
+
###i## rc
+
}}
+
  
 +
Sync all overlays via eix:
 +
<console>###i## eix-sync</console>
  
 +
=== Troubleshooting ===
 +
Problem:
 +
Warning: an installed db file was not found at: ['/var/lib/layman/cache***.xml']
  
=== Login Manager ===
+
Solution:
 +
<console>###i## layman -L</console>
  
Please take a look at http://www.funtoo.org/Package:XDM_%28Display_Manager%29 for this.

Layman is an "overlay" external repository management tool.

Installation

# emerge layman

Using Layman

Fetch, and display a list of overlays:

# layman -L

Add an overlay to your system:

# layman -a <overlay name>

After adding first overlay(s) make.conf must source laymans overlays for emerge to pull in packages from external sources. This line needs to be below everything else in make.conf.

# echo "source /var/lib/layman/make.conf" >> /etc/portage/make.conf

Delete an overlay from your system:

# layman -d <overlay name>

Masking Overlay Packages

Overlays have the power to override distro packages. To avoid conflicts, mask everything in the overlay, and unmask the packages that are necessary to your system.

/etc/portage/package.mask - mask all packages in an overlay
*/*::overlay-name
/etc/portage/package.unmask - unmask packages to be used
cat-egory/pack-age1
cat-egory/pack-age2

Sync

Sync a specific overlays ebuilds:

# layman -s <overlay name>

Sync all overlays:

# layman -S

Sync all overlays via eix:

# eix-sync

Troubleshooting

Problem: Warning: an installed db file was not found at: ['/var/lib/layman/cache***.xml']

Solution:

# layman -L
